Get to know chinese gardening history

The museum holds the history of gardening in China, lots of replicas and miniatures. Bonsai garden in the museum is good.

Although this garden is listed on Unesco Heritage sites, I was expecting a garden and not rocks. The best part of the garden is the Bonsai garden.

it's by a Chinese famous designer who was born in Suzhou, it's his last work. and no ticket needed, it's free, and not crowded. I like the place, like looking at the history pieces one by one.

This was nice museum in the middle of the oldtown Suzhou. Liked that it gave quite much insight to the history of gardens in Suzhou/China and also had good information for the main gardens nowadays available. Good place to visit when planning visits to actual gardens & the Humble administrator's garden is right next door. Allmost all signage / information... More

It´s a modern museum building and the garden here is very nice, but the collections inside are not so interesting. It was fine to see it just once.

I thought this museum was pretty cool! I wouldn't recommend going if you are only in Suzhou for a short period of time though, because Suzhou has so much more to offer.

If this was the silk museum and factory, it was one of the high points of the trip, at least on a learning basis. Arrived when it had just opened and it wasn't "overloaded" with "Golden Week" tourists.

This museum is just a little underdone but it does reveal that there were over 100 gardens in Suzhou - not just the 6 or so now available. The question is - where are they? Occupied by government/party grandees?

Had dinner in the restuarant above the museum on our first night in Suzhou. Private dining room with out own private bath and sitting area. Food was superb and soooo much of it. What an experience.
